For Les Mutins, age group 14+ with an A2+ level, the following classes will be offered:

Exploring Comics/Ma vie en BD students are immersed into “l’univers de la BD francophone,” from Asterix to Yakari; retracing its origins, and reading these childhood and grownup favorites. Summer Campers can also start making their own story adapted from a given francophone album. Requisites: technological equipment and Culturethèque access. (A2-C1 Level)

Prononciation/Théâtre students improve their understanding of French phonetics and perfect their accent through reading authentic texts and interacting with a native French speaker. Summer Campers can start acting their lines and form “une troupe de théâtre.” (All Levels) 

Culture & Civilisation/Roman students apply their reading, listening, and speaking skills to the exploration of French History and Culture, while also perfecting their writing skills through personal research and reports on cultural facts and historical figures. Summer Campers can pick a historical fact, event or personality and start writing their own part of a novel. (B1-B2 Level)

Summer Reading Activity for Intermediate Level (A2-B1-B2) with Lisa

Students will read abridged classics, discuss the place of the text in society, the authors, their contribution to the period in history, and write regularly. An abridged version of Les Misérables, le Comte de Monte Cristo would be required to take the course.
